Crewe Alexandra 1 Daggers 2

PAUL BENSON'S first goal of the season gave Daggers a 2-1 victory at Crewe Alexandra today.

Benson netted after 77 minutes from close range, slotting into the empty net after breaking clear of the Crewe defence and keeper David Button.

The goal came moments after Railwaymen substitute Byron Moore equalised for the hosts, with a cracking strike from the edge of the area.

Daggers had led in the first half, with a wonder goal from Jon Nurse, who smashed a volley home from 30 yards.
